I’m Abby. I’m 22 and a little (a lot) embarrasses to do this. I’m from London originally and moved away to Doncaster with my mum aged 10. All way happy and my life was going amazingly until I was forced to grow up overnight when I found out my mum was terminally ill In March 2015, I dropped out of college and got a job to help pay for my mum’s funeral costs when the time came. She passed away in June a week from my 17th birthday and I was an adult just like that. My dad is absent, doesn’t know where I live and won’t care to either. So after my mums funeral in London, I stayed in Doncaster on a friends sofa. I got in to a relationship with someone who hit me and emotionally battered me most days. But I stayed there because I had nothing. At the beginning of this year I left him with not a penny to my name because he kept all my money. I struggled and sofa hopped and was staying at a friends house in June this year on my birthday and i got a call from my sister in London telling my my other sister had died by suicide that day. The day after I was so happy. For a change. I know she wanted to be with my mum. So I took a big loan out to get her there as there is no one else to help with money. But because of everything and I’m living in a house with a friend I’ve found myself at my lowest point emotionally and financially as I’m still not at work due to my depression. Any help would be appreciated so much. I just want to be comfortable again. I want to be happy.
